Neck pillow, sleeping mask, earphone holders and gloves are all creature comforts we can appreciate while traveling. Now we can have easy access to all these conveniences, as well as several more, with the BauBax Traveler’s Jacket.

 

Specifically designed for traveling, the garment is more than just comfortable, it’s extremely convenient with 15 hidden features to make traveling more tolerable.

 

 

Convenient features include a built-in inflatable neck pillow hiding inside the hood of the jacket that inflates in two seconds; an eye mask built inside the hood; gloves that easily slide in and out of the sleeves to keep your hands warm on the go; earphone holders to keep them from getting tangled; a blanket pocket; an insulated neoprene koozie drink pocket to keep your beverages warm or cold and your hands free for work; a 10-inch space for your iPad to free up space in your carry-on or purse; a zipper with a pen attached that also features a bottle opener; an easily accessible smartphone pocket with seamless connections to your earphones; a space for your passport; detachable pillow and hood; and hand warming pockets.

 

The BauBax is available in four styles for men and women, including sweatshirt, windbreaker, bomber and blazer, in multiple colors, such as red, blue, black and military green.

 

To fund the project, a Kickstarter launched earlier this summer. The campaign has so far raised more than $3 million, making it the most funded clothing project ever. The Kickstarter is live through Sept. 3, offering a number of perks for supporters who back the project with monetary pledges. The full retail price for the jacket is $175, plus taxes and shipping, but special prices are available on the Kickstarter website.

Snowshoeing Mont-Tremblant

If you are traveling to a world-class ski resort, I am willing to bet snowshoeing is not the first activity you have in mind. When faced with the prospect of carving up a mountain on skis or trudging through the snow, most will choose skis.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
